Has anyone here replaced their mouse with a trackpad?

I love the Mac trackpad, how much do you use it compared to a mouse? Anyone here ditch their mouse for a full size trackpad?

People are right when they say it, the trackpad is a lot less strain and effortless compared to even the lightest tiniest mice. Two finger scrolling beats out scroll wheels, and 3 finger back and fwd beat out scrolling up to the back/fwd browser buttons.

I have a Magic Trackpad on my iMac at work and a spare one with my MacBook Pro at home (it was from another Mac - a bit redundant, but gives me options if I want to be lazy in my chair) - I like that it's functionally similar, but bigger - haven't used a mouse on any of my primary machines for probably 2 years.

mouse for gaming...built in trackpad for everything else.

p.s i hatehatehatehate how windows let you disable the trackpad while typing but apple decided to drop that feature on its MacBooks...why they did away with that feature is beyond me :confused: .. it's probably the only thing I miss about my lenovo

I tried to use a BT trackpad on my iMac but ended up using it just for swiping between desktops. Now do that with keyboard.

The same as blooperz, I use a mouse for gaming and the built in trackpad for everything else. For all use outside of gaming, I personally love the trackpad.

Same here. Trackpad is so much more convenient.

If I'm sitting at my desk, Magic Trackpad is in use. More comfortable to use (arm lays in a natural position, not pulled toward the center of the body to reach the MBP's trackpad.
